Re: New potential Bee Keeper from Central NY
Twenty years from now... Neighbors talking between themselves..."Yes, I remember that fellow from Jamesville, he seemed like a most sane person years ago, then he got bee fever...he's not been the same ever since. Likable fellow, but a little odd at the gatherings...starts to babble about bugs and drones and mites and wrapping his hives. Poor fellow, I wonder what's giving him the hives...could be the mites, I guess? Oh well, he's a little strange but seems quiet happy tinkering among all those stinging bees. His honey sure is good, though!"
Beelosopher, if you're talking about it, you are in great danger of starting to dress up like aliens and carry around pots of smoke. Life will never be the same for you and your family.....or so I've been told, not that I would know anything about this fine line you're walking.
Best wishes and welcome to the forum AND to HONEY BEES!!!!!!!!
Warning: Rookie beek...take my postings with that grain of salt you keep in your pocket.
